I just noticed that if you close Cleanmgr+ and launch it again that the +more items are remembered. That makes the situation better. So, apparently, once you run the "Check installed scripts" under the +, the ones that are found are remembered unless/until you run the "Check installed scripts" again. That is good.
Initially, how to get the +more items to have the "space to gain" calculated is still not intuitive. That is still a hurdle I think you need to address.
Maybe the option under the + should say:
"Check which +more scripts are installed"
"Check which +more scripts your Windows account is using"
See my message below for other thoughts.
Thank you for the message. I was able to get Cleanmgr+ to calculate the "space to gain" for those +more items. ;-)
As you know, this probably isn't intuitive or easy to figure out. What you have currently works, but I wouldn't necessarily expect most users to figure out how to have Cleanmgr+ calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.
For the items under the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" is calculated automatically if you click on the ____ link after gain >. So, it makes sense that if you go to the +more tab and click the ____ link after gain >, then Cleanmgr+ would calculate the "space to gain" for the +more items.
Also, if "space to gain" has been calculated for the Disk Cleanup tab or the +more items already while Cleanmgr+ is open, then it would be nice if those results were remembered despite switching between the Disk Cleanup tab and the +more tab. Currently, I can calculate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup tab and then for the +more items, but then if I go back to the Disk Cleanup tab, the "space to gain" results are gone and I have to calculate them again.
Some users might leave Cleanmgr+ open for an hour or two or even longer. In those cases, perhaps the "space to gain" results should be re-calculated. However, it would be nice if the results were remembered for each tab for at least for a few minutes or until the ____ link after gain > is clicked again. If you update Cleanmgr+ so that the +more items can also be calculated manually using the ____ link after gain >, then it would be no big deal for a user to re-calcuate "space to gain" for the Disk Cleanup or +more items if they wanted to. But, the user might prefer the results to be remembered if/when switching between tabs.
Thank you for all of your work and effort on Cleanmgr+. ;-)
In the release notes for v22.214.171.124, you mention:
"Added function to calculate the "space to gain" in "+more/Scripts" tab (this is optional and the space is automatically calculated after hitting the "+more" tab)"
I don't see how to enable this optional function. I would like to test it.
CloneApp spawns a reg.exe process for each registry item it backs up, along with a corresponding conhost.exe process, but it doesn't close these processes upon successful completion of the backups. I haven't tested what happens if CloneApp is run more than once in succession. System: Windows 7 SP1 x64.
Deleting Windows.old issue
Every time I run Cleaner+ it launches into deleting Windows.old, taking ages to remove hundreds of files again. How is this possible? Does it mean that the files are not being deleted at all, despite being reported as deleted What is going on?
